Friday, June 6
Park Theatre

Tickets are $20.00 in advance at the Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store and Ticketmaster.

Chad's blood flows by unrestrained creative impulses. He has never worked in a commercial recording studio. By his hands alone, one line, sound, shape or word leads organically to the next. Now, a father of two, the spooky-voiced multi-instrumentalist has several hundred releases to his name, has produced adventurous records and videos for some of the best bands of our time, is working on a feature-length animated science fiction film with companion book, and plays in two bands with his kids.

LIVE! ON STAGE JONATHAN RICHMAN featuring TOMMY LARKINS on the drums!

West End Cultural Centre

Tickets are $25.00 in advance at the Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store and Ticketmaster. 

The records that Jonathan Richman has made over the past 30 years have long held a special place in the hearts of his fans. He began playing guitar at the age of 15, and in the early 1970s formed the Modern Lovers, whose raw, minimalist sound and emotionally forthright songs helped to lay the groundwork for punk rock. But by the time the group’s landmark debut album was released in 1976, Jonathan had already moved on to a quieter sound and a gentler lyrical focus.
